Inter head coach Simone Inzaghi feels that despite their drop-off in form in recent weeks, the Nerazzurri are where they should be in the season as a whole.

Speaking to Italian broadcaster DAZN ahead of this evening’s Serie A clash with Fiorentina, the coach emphasized that the team are still on course in their pursuit of a second Scudetto in a row.

Last week’s draw with Torino meant that the Nerazzurri temporarily slipped five points behind city rivals AC Milan, and it was only the latest match in which they failed to take maximum points since the start of February.

Three points against Fiorentina would bring the Nerazzurri back to winning ways, however, and they would immediately put pressure not only on the Rossoneri but also on Napoli who beat Udinese earlier today.

The coach feels that there is no reason to panic and that the team are still in a position to win the title, but that they must get back to winning ways immediately.

“We were sorry to drop a few points,” he explained, “and to have slowed down, but we are perfectly in line with where we wanted to be.”

“This was a week in which we were able to work harder, and then we had a barbecue together, but as always we analyzed the things that needed to be analyzed as we always do,” he said.

“Not having a midweek commitment, we were able to work in the best way,” he added.

Of midfielder Arturo Vidal, he said that “I think he’s always trained in the best way, a player who has been used a lot, has always responded well, there’s no problem and the atmosphere is calm.”

And of who will be used in the holding midfield role with Marcelo Brozovic out, he said that “I think Calhanoglu will start there initially, and then the midfield three will rotate a lot.”
